To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David, for the memorial offering. Be pleased, O God, to deliver me! O LORD, make haste to help me!
Let them be put to shame and confusion who seek my life! Let them be turned back and brought to dishonor who desire my hurt!
Let them be appalled because of their shame who say, "Aha, Aha!"
May all who seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee! May those who love thy salvation say evermore, "God is great!"
But I am poor and needy; hasten to me, O God! Thou art my help and my deliverer; O LORD, do not tarry!
